Il prossimo 25 agosto la vedremo in Nightmare di Samuel Bayer e il prossimo 12 novembre in The Social Network di David Fincher.
La sua prova in The Social Network deve aver convinto il regista David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club) che l’ha scelta anche per l’adattamento hollywoodiano della trilogia dei romanzi polizieschi di Stieg Larsson che la Sony gli ha chiesto di dirigere.
La sceneggiatura del primo libro, Uomini che Odiano le Donne, è di Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, American Gangster) e il cast comprende anche Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgaard e Robin Wright.
L’uscita è prevista per il 21 dicembre 2011.

The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson has been published in 44 countries and has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide thus far. In the U.S. alone, the series has sold over 10 million copies, and the sales were recently calculated at the remarkable rate of one book per second. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has broken sales records in virtually every country in which it has been published. It has sold over 5 million copies in the U.S. and has out-sold any other e-book in that rapidly expanding market. A literary phenomenon, all three books currently sit atop the New York Times Best Seller lists. In describing the scale of Larsson’s achievement, The Economist said: “Stieg Larsson’s vivid characters, the depth of the detail across the three books, the powerfully imaginative plot, and the sheer verve of the writing make the trilogy a masterpiece of its genre.” Michiko Kakutani, of The New York Times, described the Lisbeth character: “Lisbeth Salander, Stieg Larsson’s fierce pixie of a heroine, is one of the most original characters in a thriller to come along in a while – a gamin, Audrey Hepburn look-alike but with tattoos and piercings, the take-no-prisoners attitude of Lara Croft and the cool, unsentimental intellect of Mr. Spock. She is the vulnerable victim turned vigilante; a willfully antisocial girl . . . who has proved herself to be as incandescently proficient as any video game warrior.” The three novels have all become #1 worldwide bestsellers, an achievement unrivaled in trade book publishing.
DAVID FINCHER most recently directed this fall’s much-anticipated The Social Network for Columbia Pictures, which opens in the U.S. on October 1st.
